Yarn Stores

I went to Stitch DC in Georgetown yesterday morning. It was pretty nice-- I fell in love with 225 yards of lace weight cashmere in beautiful colors. There may still be a little puddle of drool on the floor. The price tag kept it firmly on the shelf though, and not in my yarn stash.

But the store made me realize something that I really miss about the Midwest-- large yarn stores. Rent is much out East these days that yarn stores are small with a higher markup. Ah well, what am I going to do? I shouldn't be buying yarn anyway-- gotta stick to the stash diet!

Hi Jennie,

I liked Stitch DC in Georgetown when I visited last year. Very friendly staff and of course I found yarn I had to have. Are you coming to A2 for a visit this year?

No A2 for me. I had to do a bunch of family stuff in SE Michigan this fall/winter that brought me to the area a lot but left no time for socializing, sadly...

If you ever have time for a visit you can stay at my house (in the country). I'll take you yarn shop hopping! August 17 -19 is the Michigan Fiber Festival...tempting?

Have fun in Maryland
